The editor-in-chief of a magazine dedicated to the royal family revealed that Harry “wanted to rock the boat”.
“He knew what he was doing,” Majesty editor-in-chief Ingrid Seward told the New York Post .
âI can swear to you, and he wanted to rock this boat,â Seward said. “Absolutely why, I don’t understand, but he wanted to.” And then he did, and I don’t think he’s surprised by the repercussions or regrets it for a second.
What Seward doesn’t understand is why the couple went to Winfrey’s house. She also finds Markle’s claim that her appeals for mental health help from Buckingham Palace have been rejected unbelievable.
âI find it so hard to understandâ¦ what she was trying to tell us over there,â Seward told the tabloid.
âYou don’t go to the human resources department in the UK. You go to a doctor, or you say to your husband, âHoney, I feel bad, I need you to find someone. Harry was in therapy himself, so he had to know people.
Ultimately, Seward believes the former Suits actress’ struggle was due to the fact that she “always had a voice” and didn’t understand that she was now playing a bit into something more. great than a TV show.
â(Harry) didn’t explain the ordinary things to him about being royal. That it’s not about you, it’s about the monarchy – it’s not like being a celebrity,â Seward said. .
And “being American” was always going to be a “problem,” she added.
âI don’t think she knew that she wouldn’t be able to say what she was thinking or that she wouldn’t be able to express her opinion. It’s what she’s been used to all her life, and all of a sudden she’s in a straitjacket, âSeward said.
But Seward believes that, in the end, Winfrey’s interview which presented accusations of racism and bullying hurt the Royal Family.
âNo one is attacking the royal family. I’ve never heard of a member of the royal family criticizing them like Harry or Meghan do, âSeward said.
